Drug Abuse Trends In Omaha

Omaha is Nebraska’s largest city with 466,893 residents. Its metropolitan area holds over a million people across two states. While coastal regions have faced the harsh consequences of prescription opioid addiction, Omaha’s numbers remain well below the national average. The most commonly abused substances in the area are:

Methamphetamine Abuse In Omaha

Meth, in particular, remains a problem for the midwestern city. Omaha’s Douglas County is a High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area due to the wholesale transportation of methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana from the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico and the US southwest. Mexican “Ice” (a distilled, more potent form of meth) is common in the area, according to the Omaha Metro Drug Task Force. The highly addictive stimulant was once manufactured in the largely rural area surrounding Omaha. A decade ago, state patrol shut down more than 250 meth labs in a year. Last year authorities busted only three. Today, illicit substances come via I-29 or I-80, hidden in private and commercial vehicles.

Meth is also linked to a number of violent and property crimes. The US Attorney’s Office for Nebraska prosecuted almost 5 times the number of meth-related cases in 2016 as it did in 2007; 93% of Omaha drug prosecutions that year were for meth. It is also a contributing factor in more Nebraska child welfare cases than any other drug.

Binge and Underage Drinking In Omaha

High rates of alcohol-related fatal car accidents in the 2000s forced Omaha authorities to focus on curtailing alcohol abuse and addiction. By 2013, one in five high school students reported drinking in the past month and drinking before the age of 13. The same rate of adults report binge drinking in the past month.

Studies show that parents’ excessive alcohol consumption correlates to higher rates of alcohol abuse among their children. Rates of binge drinking in Nebraska are higher than the national average. Adolescents are overrepresented in Nebraska drinking statistics; underage drinking accounts for approximately 25% of all alcohol sold in the state.

In a ranking of states based on the alcohol percentage consumed by youth, with 1 being the highest, Nebraska ranked fifth.

Addiction Treatment In Omaha

There are a variety of treatment options for residents of Omaha seeking recovery. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services provides funding and contract management to area facilities who, in turn, provide prevention and treatment services.

In 2016, 12,248 residents benefited from substance use treatment. About half were between the ages of 25 and 44; 26% were between 45 and 64. The majority of drug treatment admissions were for patients with stimulant addictions (methamphetamines especially). In fact, more Nebraskans sought rehabilitation for meth addictions in 2015 than any previous year. Only alcohol use disorders sent more residents to treatment in Omaha.
